Paul Pogba sends message to his doubters after winning the World Cup

Croatia's bid for World Cup final glory is against their conquerors in 1998

Some called on France to recognize the victory as a much-needed wake-up call for the country to adopt policies upholding the rights and dignity of migrants and Muslims. Additionally, France celebrated Bastille Day on Saturday, so the entire nation is in a mood to keep the party going.

In the final episode of JOE's World Cup Minipod, Dion Fanning, Paddy McKenna and Nooruddean Choudry discuss France, Pogba and the tournament of shithousery.

It seems a bit hard to imagine that anybody plans on being productive in France this week.

Mbappe's strike partner, Antoine Griezmann, still has plenty of football left to play at 27 as well, meaning their partnership could yet fire France to more European success.

The presence of N'Golo Kante beside him has helped, and France are a team with very few obvious weaknesses, but Pogba has certainly played his part.

Mbappe followed in Pele's footsteps by scoring in a World Cup final as a teenager, taking France 4-1 ahead with a low effort from distance past a statuesque Danijel Subasic for his fourth goal of the tournament.

"This is maybe one of the greatest sporting achievements of any Croatians".

For whatever reason, Croatia" s "Cinderella story' at this year's tournament has won the hearts of most of the world.

For the third-place playoff between Belgium and England in Saint Petersburg on Saturday, FIFA have selected Iranian referee Alireza Faghani.

After full-time, as he waited for the trophy presentation on the rain-drenched pitch of Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, Pogba was seemingly captured addressing some of his critics. Mexico veteran Rafael Marquez became the first player picked in a starting 11 at five World Cups.

Now there have been 161 goals scored in 62 matches, for an average of 2.6 goals per match.

They again came from behind on Sunday when Ivan Perisic fired home an angled shot in the first half but they were 4-1 down when Mario Mandzukic punished a mistake by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the 69th minute to make amends for his early own goal.

On hindsight, the 2018 World Cup has without any iota of a doubt lived up to the expectations of all the stakeholders, hopefully, the 63rd and 64th matches will surely live up to the billing by serving us the best of football.
